Eddie Vedder Postpones Solo Tour

Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder has postponed his solo tour due to temporary nerve damage in his right arm. The injury is the result of a back injury sustained earlier this year. Vedder was slated to tour as a solo act this spring, including a high-profile return to the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. All Vedder’s spring shows will be rescheduled for this fall, with the exception of the Pearl Jam leader’s JazzFest appearance. The festival’s promoters are expected to announce a replacement act in the coming weeks.

A message from Pearl Jam manager Kelly Curtis explains:

After having worked aggressively with doctors and physical therapists for the last eight weeks to repair the damage, the intensity of the injury and time needed to heal has made it impossible to play the shows as scheduled. There was hope up until the last minute that the treatments would be successful. Sincerest apologies go out to those who have made plans and bought tickets. Eddie is frustrated beyond measure, but remains positive that come this summer all will be back in good form. All postponed dates will be rescheduled for November and December 2012. Tickets will be honored for rescheduled dates. Refunds will be available upon request through the point-of-purchase. Fan Club members with Ten Club pre-sale ticket will receive an email regarding proper refund procedures today, Thursday April 5

Glen Hansard (The Swell Season, The Frames) will join Vedder on the road this fall. His rescheduled shows will kick off in Las Vegas on Halloween.
